I wish I lived closer to the Electric Cheetah because I'd go there at least once a month if I did. It is so refreshing to go somewhere "different" for a change. If you appreciate the boring sameness of chain restaurants, don't go here. If you long for the old days when you could find little mom and pop places where the owners had a fun vision for their place and are able to create an atmosphere and food to go along with it, then this place is for you. I have been there twice now, and eaten different things both times. The quality of the food is very good. You can bring children here and they will enjoy it. Their signature macaroni and cheese dish is perfect. My 14 year old daughter is picky about her mac and cheese, with a rating system. Prior to visiting the Electric Cheetah she had Panera rated as the highest. But the Electric Cheetah blew them away. I had The Trap which is a form of mac and cheese, but with a lobster carbonara twist. It was soooo rich and creamy and not "fishy" at all, just kind a hint of crabby and lobstery flavor mixed into the sauce and nice chunks of what I believe to be langostino (a less expensive form of lobster, but still quite good) throughout, with peas, bacon and red onion. I was afraid to order the mac and cheese because the menu said something about mustard which I do not like. But I ate several bites of my daughters and the mustard level was perfect, and next time I would order the mac and cheese. The first time I was there they had a special appetizer of pork belly with carmelized onions and oh my word it was awesome! Sadly they didn't have it this time. Their selection of root beer is crazy! And as a diabetic I wholeheartedly recommend the Dang Good diet butterscotch root beer. Finally, the atmosphere is interesting, again eclectic, with some really fun mural paintings over the cooking area and a tree emblem on another wall, black mesh wastebaskets for shades on pendant lights, a lot of black but it made for a cozy feel as the restaurant is not overly large. The wall of windows at the front with a view of the street keeps things real. I loved sitting by those windows but my daughter found it cool to her taste. Oh, and just a tip, there's a narrow alleyway on the west side of the building that leads to a parking lot. It may not be obvious to you that it is there, and you exit via the east end of the parking lot onto a little side street.
